I watched Nico 1988; pretty good I thought. Trine Dyrholme was great in the lead and John Gordon Sinclair is always watchable. I thought the music and band scenes/concerts were done very well. After it, I watched a Nico show from 86/87 and she and her band were pretty kicking.

Brightburn. What if Superman was evil concept. Alien foundling finds himself succumbing to homicidal urges as he enters adolescence and uses his superpowers to terrorise the townsfolk. Good idea but the execution is a little lazy.

Saw The Current War yesterday. It's surprisingly not bad, doesn't get sensationalist for the most part. Maybe the best thing about it is that Michael Shannon shows he can actually be a good actor when he's not just being thrown psycho roles, he's really good in this. On the other hand, Benedryl Jabberwock just plays himself again.
The film suffers from some pacing issues though, it doesn't really hold the attention throughout. I'd give it a 6/10

I watched 2 films on the horror channel yesterday. I seen both of the before.

They came from beyond space (1967) Fairly typical late 60s, low budget British sci-fi. Some wooden acting, some nice sets, the special effects consist of glowing multi coloured rocks & some echo on their voices. Enjoyable to a point. The ending is stupid.

They Live (1986) A John Carpenter cult classic. It could do with a bit of editing, not perfectly execcuted but it's a cool film. Apparently it's been accused of promoting anti Semitic conspiracy theories.

Jackie Brown.

First time seeing it in years. Its very good, to borrow from the modrin parlance, Pam Grier is a mood. The film essentially orbits her. Pretty shit that she didn't get as many awards for it as Samuel L. You'd kinda hope QT would do another adaptation when this is what is he is capable of.

Machete II: Machete Kills or whatever it was called.

This is as wonderfully stupid as I hoped.

Take Shelter. Michael Shannon is amazing in this. There's a scene where he has a psychotic episode at at community gathering and the extras - real towns people - weren't told what was going to happen and you can see the genuine looks of shock and fright on their faces when he starts ranting and raving about a how there's a storm comin'. Amazing stuff
